Fiorentina Sign Liverpool Midfielder Alberto Aquilani

Anfield man to make permanent Italian switch.

Whether you believe that the £20m invested in Italian international Alberto Aquilani was well spent or not one thing is undoubtedly true and that is that the former Roma man never got the chance to prove himself at Anfield.

Rafa Benitez was pilloried for forking out a massive sum for a player who was at the time carrying an injury, however the Spaniard compounded that original error by failing to have faith in the midfielder when he did return to full fitness, which was odd behaviour from the former Liverpool boss.

Aquilani then spent the next two seasons on loan at Juventus and AC Milan and though Brendan Rodgers did state that the midfielder had a future at the Merseyside club it seems that he opted instead to allow the midfielder to return to Serie A on a permanent basis.

Alberto Aquilani made just nine Premier League starts for Liverpool over the course of his three years at the club.
